Fiber Printing

Printing is effected by orienting fine fibers on a fibrous record medium in accordance with the information to be registered. Fibrous record medium 10 is moved past an electrostatic generating unit 23 and ironing rolls 25, 26 for depressing all of the fibers 20 in a selected direction.

Under the effect of electrostatic forces, the fibers are elevated below the face 41 of cathode ray tube 29 in selected areas of medium 10 corresponding to the configuration of the information to be registered. The tips of the elevated fibers are then inked at marking station 14 by a stylus and then rolled down by ironing rolls 54 and 55 driven by motor M.
